Workers in Hull have taken strike action over a pay dispute with their employers Greencore. They say many of them are losing up to £50 a week.
Hundreds of staff at a cake factory in Hull have gone on strike in a dispute over their pay.
Unions say a temporary deal to accept lower overtime pay by workers at Greencore has become permanent - and that the change means that many are losing at much as £50 a week. The company says it's in talks with the workforce, and is also engaged in a legal process to try and find a resolution.
500 cake factory works are on the picket line because of a dispute over pay cuts at Greencore in Hull. Many could lose their homes and are living on poverty line.
Greencore have issued this statement over a tribunal judgement whereby employees in Hull won a claim for over a £1m against the company.
Workers at a cake manufacturer in Hull have won a claim for over a million pounds at a tribunal against their employers.
More than 400 staff at Greencore agreed to take a temporary pay cut until October last year - to help the firm - which makes cakes for some of the UK's biggest supermarkets - during the recession.
But when Greencore continued paying the lower rate - beyond last October - a tribunal ruled all the staff should be paid for the money they've lost out on.
